Designing Wood-Frame Structures for High Winds

Wood framing is conducive to meeting the challenges of wind-resistive design. Among its characteristics, wood can carry substantially greater maximum loads for short durations of time as is the case in high-wind events. Wood buildings also tend to include multiple and often redundant load paths for resistance to wind forces. This presentation will cover the design of a building’s wind-resisting system, including wind load calculations, diaphragms, shear walls and collectors. Load path continuity will be discussed, as will unique design considerations for designing wood-frame structures to resist uplift, in-plane, and out-of-plane wind loads. Design examples will be presented to illustrate relevant design procedures and detailing best practices.
